Hello Dear Friends,

The expression “We have come to the end of another week with its hot and sweet” has found its full meaning with this recipe :) I don't know if it is the recipe I prepared or it is the last working day of the week. I am very happy today. Although my work has been delayed to the weekend in the last weeks, I have started to make very enjoyable plans and even reservations for the coming weeks. That doesn't make me work with more determination, you know :)

sweet chili sauce

Anyway, let's come to our hot sweet sauce, I first tasted this sauce years ago in a fast food restaurant that serves Chinese dishes. Its bitter sweetness gave such a wonderful flavor to the sautéed chicken I ate that I lost my mind. Afterwards, every time we stopped by, I ate my chicken with the same sauce. Later, bittersweet (sweet chili sauce) sauces started to be sold in the markets, even I bought it once, but I could not get the same taste.


I decided to evaluate the leftover peppers from the hot and sour soup I prepared earlier. When you have chili pepper, you cannot add it to everything and consume it. At least I can't eat that much pain. So I decided to prepare my homemade bittersweet sauce. Based on my previous burning experiences, I did not neglect to use gloves this time.


Don't forget to remove the seeds from the chili peppers, your sauce may be too hot when the seeds are involved.

this sauce crispy chicken, buttermilk chicken and in this recipe with crispy finger chickens you can try.


Ingredients for Hot Sweet Sauce (Homemade) Recipe

  • 5-6 chilli peppers (5 good for those who like less hot)
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of rice vinegar
  • 2 tea glass of granulated sugar
  • half a cup of water
  • 2 teaspoons of wheat starch
  • 1 tablespoons of water
  • a small pinch of salt

How to Make Hot Sweet Sauce (Homemade) Recipe?

  1. Cut off the stems of the peppers, cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. (I recommend you to use gloves because the pain does not come off easily)
  2. Peel the garlic, cut the peppers that you removed the seeds into 2-3 pieces.
  3. Put the peppers and garlic in the food processor and run it. If the peppers are large, add 1 tea glass of vinegar and run them again, so they will break down more easily.
  4. Put the stuffed in the robot in a small sauce pan, add the remaining vinegar, water and 2 tea glasses of sugar and cook it for 10 minutes, stirring over low heat.
  5. In a small bowl, open 2 teaspoons of starch by adding 1 tablespoon of water. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the sauce in the pot and mix.
  6. Add the starch you opened to the sauce pan, and mix it to prevent lumps.
  7. After 1-2 minutes, remove the sauce that has thickened from the stove. Once peeled, put it in a bottle or jar. Store in the refrigerator.

    Hi, thanks for the nice sweet hot sauce recipe. It was so good that as you said, when we use other vinegars, the vinegar taste is dominant (I used apple cider vinegar). BUT Green salads are not exactly the same as sweet chili sauce. Bitter but so sweet.

    Hello, what is the storage period of the sauce in the refrigerator?

    If I make this sauce using 1 kg of pepper, what should be the other ingredients?

  • Oct. 17, 2018 at 12:44 PM

    Is there an alternative to rice vinegar, such as apples, grapes?

      Hello, other nits are very dominant. Rice vinegar is the best in terms of flavor. Yours sincerely

        Hello friends, the chilli (Chile) sauce that I just made by following the recipe is officially pepper jam, a sauce that I love very much and that is always at home, but for the first time in my life, I ate pepper jam, this is not the Chilean sauce, it's a waste of our time, money, and effort. I visited 7 markers to find Chile. Please do not follow the tariff.

          Ms. Ebru, the recipe says sweet hot sauce, it tastes almost exactly the same as the hot sweet sauce sold in the market. I wish you had read the title and cover letter more carefully before making such a comment.

      Hi, it will be enough to boil it until it reaches the consistency you want. Yours sincerely

    I used a glass of apple cider vinegar after boiling it with a handful of rice and a little water and straining it, it was very good. I even made the same recipe with 2 teaspoons of flour because there was no starch at home at that moment, I recommend it to everyone. It was perfect.

      Although there are recipes with less vinegar in different places, even when I use a glass of apple cider vinegar, it tastes intensely and is not good. How can I sleep with it? We also buy it as chili pepper, even if you try to use gloves, it does not feel bitter, so it is empty pepper. I love this sauce, I also consume it outside, but the first time I made it, I could not catch a taste.

    If we add home made apple cider vinegar to this hot sauce instead of rice vinegar, I wonder...?
